Long Point Beach is the most remote beach on the Cape, and it takes a little extra effort to reach, but the end result is well worth it - the marine life and landscape here is unparalleled. If you're feeling adventurous you can walk across the breakwater, a moderately difficult hike that can take up to two hours each way. Luckily, during the high season, there's also a Long Point Shuttle that ferries visitors straight to the beach in about fifteen minutes. Nature lovers will enjoy this beach in particular, as low tide reveals horse shoe crabs, hermit crabs, snails, clams, starfish, and sand dollars, and dolphins can be seen off the point. Be sure to bring your own water and snacks, as there is no infrastructure on this beach.

This is my favorite beach despite all the pebbles and rocks, because of the views and how few people come out this way. The only caveat is it can be very windy because you're so exposed.
I like to rent a kayak to get out to this beach then after kayak over to the Red Inn for a cold beer and oysters but you can also get to Long Point Beach by water taxi if the idea of paddling across...
